Seeking Stories of Redemption

At the holidays, there is no shortage of inspirational movies, television shows, school plays, countless "…….Who Saved Christmas" specials, so perhaps this is the best time for you to share one of your own tales from your practice.

At the holidays, there is no shortage of inspirational movies, television shows, school plays, countless "…….Who Saved Christmas" specials, so perhaps this is the best time for you to share one of your own tales from your practice.

In the latest installment of our Physicians Writer Search, we are looking for physicians to share their stories of "redemption." We are looking for your stories about patients, diagnoses, malpractice, dealing with your family or patients' families, or any other way you measure redemption.

Do you have a "Rudy"-esque tale of once being the little guy/girl in medical school only to rise above? An "I told you so" moment with a more seasoned colleague? How about helping a patient in need that really made your day/week/year?

While you are in the holiday mood, reflecting on the year that was at your practice, share a story of redemption with us, won't you? We'll consider it our gift this year, saving you a trip to the mall.

But much like your shopping, the deadline is almost near: essays are due by Dec. 17.
